I am Your Friend, and I Love You (A Poem)

When the world has forsaken you,
I will be here, strong. 
When the ocean's waves become too strong,
I will carry you to shore.
When the driving rains become too much for you to bear,
I will shelter you.
When the only thing you hear is the echo of your own heartbeat,
I will be there to hold your hand.

For I am your friend, and I love you.

When the night sky is all you see,
I will point you in the Sun's direction.
When the blinding rays blind you from reality,
I will shield you from the light.
When the evening chill causes your soul to shake,
I will warm you with all that I am.
When doubts and uncertainty cause your ground to shake,
I will guide you to solid ground.

For I am your friend, and I love you.

When you feel all alone and the beasts howl all around,
I will hold the torch beside you.
When the stones begin to fly and the blood begins to flow,
I will plant my feet beside you.
When the angels flee and the demons come,
I will endure, and never leave your side.
When the tears flow down your beautiful face,
We will shed them together, you and I.

For I am your friend, and I love you.
